Transforming Subsea Lifting
Suitable for installation, remedial work and removal, Aubin’s ULS offers a simple, controllable means of placing, recovering and moving infrastructure on the seabed.
When deployed, the ULS performs lifting operations underwater, therefore reducing the requirement for expensive vessel mounted cranes and reducing time delays such as “waiting on weather” a common challenge in the North Sea. The Aubin ULS is set to improve safety, reduce cost and offer operators a solution for many challenging subsea lifting operations.
The ULS uses Aubin’s patented pumpable buoyancy technology that renders objects neutrally buoyant, allowing ROVs and divers to manoeuvre objects on the seabed with ease. Tested at Aberdeen University’s OceanLab facility, the system is suitable for installation, remedial work and removal, offering a simple, controllable way of placing, recovering and moving infrastructure subsea.
